Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley : writing lives by Helen M Buss( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pioneers in life writing, Mary Wollstonecraft, author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), and Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein (1818 ), are now widely regarded as two of the leading writers of the Romantic period. They are both responsible for opening up new possibilities for women in genres traditionally dominated by men. This volume brings together essays on Wollstonecraft's and Shelley's life writing by some of the most prominent scholars in Canada, Australia, and the United States. It also includes a full-length play by award-winning Canadian playwright Rose Scollard. To

Repossessing the world : reading memoirs by contemporary women by Helen M Buss( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book-length critical inquiry into women's use of a form that has often been dismissed as less important than autobiography, less professional than the novel, and less intellectual than the formal essay. The author demonstrates that the memoir makes its own art not only through selective borrowing from these genres but also through the unique way that the tripartite narrative voice of the memoir--autobiography, novel, and essay--constructs the personal and public experience of the memorist as significant to our cultural moment.

Working in women's archives : researching women's private literature and archival documents by Marlene Kadar( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What Comes to mind when we hear that a friend or colleague is studying unpublished documents in a celebrated author's archive? We might assume that they are reading factual documents or, at the very least, straightforward accounts of the truth about someone or some event. But are they?" "Working in Women's Archives is a collection of essays that poses this question and offers a variety of answers. Any assumption readers may have about the archive as a neutral library space or about the archival document as a simple and pure text is challenged." "In essays discussing celebrated Canadian authors such as Marian Engel and L.M. Montgomery, as well as lesser-known writers such as Constance Kerr Sissons and Marie Rose Smith, Working in Women's Archives persuades us that our research methods must be revised and refined in order to create a scholarly place for a greater variety of archival subjects and to accurately represent them in current feminist and poststructuralist theories."--Jacket
Undelivered letters to Hudson's Bay Company men on the Northwest Coast of America, 1830-57( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early nineteenth century, when the Hudson's Bay Company sent men to its posts along the coast of North America's Pacific Northwest, letters from loved ones followed in the company's supply ships. The messages from a mother or father, a wife or sweetheart travelled for many months from London, around the southernmost tip of South America, and north to isolated trading posts. By the time a letter carrying the news and gossip from home reached its destination, it might well miss the man meant to read it. The Company returned these letters to its London office, and over the years an "undelivered letters" file built up. Many remained sealed for 150 years." "Beattie and Buss invite us into the lives of the letter writers, threading together their words with contemporary explanations. This unique collection of letters will be compelling reading for social historians, literary scholars, genealogists, students of the fur trade, and anyone interested in British and North American culture of the period. The news of everyday life - from parents on farms and in towns, sisters in domestic service, brothers and friends in trade - reaches out across two centuries to speak with us with startling immediacy."--Jacket

"A Newfoundland girl who awakened to the public world just at the moment her homeland joined Canada, she writes of her childhood, of the effects of war, technology, the politics of nation and gender, and of the private world of several generations of her close-knit family. From the perspective of a woman from "away," she discovers a New Found Land of "girlhood" that weaves past and present in a narrative that delights in questioning its own making."--Jacket
